  • Abstract  

    School refusal is a common problem observed in children in India and elsewhere. It is a serious problem because it usually poses significant and adverse consequences. Unfortunately, it is not often seen as such. Short-term consequences include poor academic performance, family difficulties, and peer relationship problems.[1,2] The long-term consequences are obvious: reduced opportunities to attend higher education, employment problems, social difficulties, and increased risk for later psychiatric illness.[3]
